I would like to take this opportunity to express my warm greetings to you and your colleagues in Chinese Red Cross Society.

It is my pleasure to inform you that the consignment of the Covid-19 vaccine is well received and we hereby announce our preparedness to support and coordinate receiving more consignments according to the mandate and resources within the NS capacities.

As it was discussed in our last meeting with the MENA NS leaders, this will boost the multilateral partnership among sister national societies and result in more visibility and trust among our International RCRC Movement. 

Once again, I would like to express our willing to strengthen the bilateral cooperation with the Chinese Red Cross and please accept my appreciation for the humanitarian endeavors by your good side for such an important event.

We wish our fruitful cooperation and humanitarian activities in favor of the vulnerable people continue in future.


With my best regards,
